West End United Methodist Church

Open Hearts Open Minds

Topics:Sunday service

This is our annual Youth Sunday when the church’s youth serve in every capacity for the worship service.  The Children’s Moment is led by RJ Gilliland, and the speakers for the sermon are Mary Frances Harrell and Riley Verner. There has been much in the last year that has been confusing, much as our post-resurrection story from Luke shows how confused the disciples were at seeing the risen Jesus after he had been crucified and buried.  Experiences at West End for these youth who have grown up here have formed a foundation for faith.  What steps of sharing love have helped through this year?  What happens when one’s faith fails?  Mary Frances and Riley share their insights.    (NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are livestreaming the early service and having limited congregation.  NOTE:  The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
